Bret Baier said he never got plastic surgery.
Nevertheless, the Twitter criticism continued. “Bret Baier is the victim of [so] much plastic surgery that it’s clouded his fairness,” someone tweeted in 2019.
“How much plastic surgery has Bret Baier had?” another Twitter user asked in 2020.
A week later, a third Twitter user cast doubts. “Like, I am just not sure if I believe Bret Baier about plastic surgery,” that person wrote. “No judgment either way, but if you truly haven’t, then man, whoever beats your face is basically Michelangelo.”
Other cable news hosts have disclosed plastic surgery, Botox use, and laser treatments.
Baier denied getting plastic surgery, but other familiar faces from cable news have opened up about cosmetic procedures.
In 2017, for example, Fox & Friends meteorologist Janice Dean underwent an outpatient laser procedure called Fractora in an effort to tighten her neck skin. Instead, she experienced facial swelling and difficulty talking — so much so that she couldn’t even go on air.
“Here’s what I’ve learned: These new lasers, injections, and cosmetic procedures that look as if they can turn back time? There’s a little more to it,” Dean wrote in a Fox News op-ed. “There are risks. It takes a while to heal. It’s also expensive. There are many possible complications that we need to be aware of before we sign on the dotted line. We should ask our doctors the worst-case scenario so we’re prepared.”
“At some point, I started Botox and other skin treatments in hopes of zapping my face into submission. The fight to ‘fit the look’ took a whole new dimension of expensive touch-ups and ‘adjustments,’” she wrote.
Brzezinski revealed that since living wrinkle-erasing treatments behind, she was feeling more beautiful than she felt two decades prior. “I’m never going to say never, but I honestly believe that most of that is behind me now,” she added. “I stopped it all two years ago and haven’t looked back. It’s too exhausting, too expensive, and never really that good.”
In 2015, Chris Cuomo explained to a Twitter user how he looked so “fresh” on the CNN morning show New Day. “I have had extensive plastic surgery, and I take a lot of ‘supplements.’ My face is permanently ‘interested,’” he quipped.
